I would highly recommend the Banff Centre for your next conference or family vacation. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, and their food services dept. is way ahead of the times with offering many delicious gluten and dairy free items. I will definitely be back!

I've been to many conference facilities across North America, and I have never been anywhere that I prefer to the Banff Centre. I'm proud as a Canadian to have such a world class facility in such a stunning location.

We were here for a three-day professional conference and much of it´s success was do to the venue. The rooms were clean and very comfortable, the buffets were of outstanding quality (although quite pricy before and after the conference package) and the env environment was ideal for conversations, walks among the wildlife and personal reflection.

Had the opportunity to stay here for 5 nights, half for a conference and half for extended vacation. The rooms are neat and tidy (think "upscale dorm.") The food, however, is absolutely amazing. Wonderfully rich, healthy and varied. The deck view with fireplaces overlooking the mountains in the Bistro is amazing. Can't believe with this food quality and view combo... More

We had a small group of graduate students and faculty from the University of Calgary here for a two day conference. The planning process was very smooth and the facility was perfect for our needs. Delegates commented that this conference was far better than many large academic conferences they had attended. Food was wonderful and the location is perfect for... More

Very enjoyable. Good view. Helpful and friendly staff. The food was the best food I have ever had. The rooms are not very sound proof but not bad otherwise. The Dining view was amazing. Overall a very beautiful place.

I attended the Petroleum Safety Conference again this year. The Banff Centre is truly a world class facility. In all cases, the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Dominic, in the Vistas Dining Room was the BEST!!

Banff is beautiful and I understand that anywhere you stay in Banff will be pricey, but I have a tough time justifying paying more to stay at the Banff Center than Brewster's or anywhere else! The rooms are in desperate need of an update, but they are clean.
